Having problems with your HP PC Desktops ?

No Sound My computer is not puting out any sound. It's not my speakers, I have two sets that work on my laptop. I recently moved... I had sound before and none afterwards. I handled the computer without dropping it, I've been online trying to fix this for about 2 weeks now. I called a computer tech and I didn't even receive a call back... Someone please help, thanks.


Answers :

Please try to check the sound device status if its working properly thru right click My Computer icon > Properties > Hardware tab > Device Manager > (double click) Sound, Video & Game Controller OR System Device > System Speaker. also, take note of the Troubleshoot tab. If still it doesn't work, I think you have to reinstall the sound driver (from its motherboard software CD if it's built-in type). best regards

I don't know what to do about this seeing as the computer doesn't recognize the sound card all of a sudden. I don't see the Sigmatel any
